Some tin can man craft projects are available on WorthTheWhisk.com and ThriftyFun.com. Basic supplies for this project include tin cans in multiple sizes, round objects to make facial features and torso buttons, wire, screws, and a screwdriver.
ThriftyFun.com recommends spray painting all the cans an aluminum color and spraying all the round objects, such as bottle caps or buttons, with black acrylic paint. Use a metal funnel as the hat and sardine cans to make the feet. If a metal funnel is not available, use the aluminum-colored spray paint to paint a plastic one. Use heavy gauge wire to string all the cans together and construct the body.
